The dynamic link between After Effects and AME seems not to work.
When I export a file from Ae (Export/Add to Media Encoder Queue) Ae opens but nothing I added to the queue even after 30mins. This isn't right.
The iMac is only 2 months old (i7, 72GB, 8GB GPU) running BIG Sur, so it's not a spec issue.
I've tried holding shift when starting Ae to clear prefs
I started AME first and then opened Ae
I restarted the iMac
I've waited 20mins
The only thing that seems to work is if I uninstall the program and re-install and then leave AME open all day.
Surely there is a better way? Any advice would be appreciated.

Do you mean AME opens? Can you try the following:
Exit AE and AME.
Open AME separately.
Once both are up and running, open your project in AE and then export/add to AME queue.
Hi Jeff, sorry I meant AME opens,
I've tried all the different ways of opening the programs and the files and resetting the prefs, the only way to get the queue running is to uninstall the program and delete prefs at the prompt and reinstall again.
When I send the Ae file to AME the AME window pops up to the front but nothing is ever ingested even after 30mins.
Thanks for the advice

I've now found the answer myself. When I first installed the Creative Cloud I must have been asked to allow AEServer control of my computer (must have missed it).
This can be found here...
System Preferences / Security & Privacy / Privacy Tab /Accessibilty
Unlock the settings and switch on AEServer in the options.
All working fine now.
Great find! Glad it's working for you now.
